The scholarship can be used for on-campus and online CCAS summer courses. Funding is limited, but priority will be given to students who are taking courses for G-PAC or major requirements.

It is hard to say at this point, and each case is different. The purpose of the scholarship is to help the greatest number of students possible. However, funds are limited. Last year, the vast majority of students who received the Summer Scholarship got enough aid to pay for one credit. A few got enough to pay for multiple credits. That being said, if you qualify, apply. It costs nothing and you are under no obligation.

Yes, each year is different. There is no reason someone couldn’t receive a scholarship more than once. Even if you did not receive a scholarship last year, or were offered one and turned it down, feel free to apply.

No. No tuition will be due until the first day of the summer session in which the class is being taught. Students who register for a CCAS summer class in order to apply for the scholarship and later decide to drop the class will owe nothing, as long as the course is dropped prior to the first day of the session.
